About Biebel Brittanys
We breed, raise and train high quality Brittanys from Nolan's Last Bullet, Microdot, Grand Junction Jake, Gamblers Ace in the Hole, and Hammerin Hank/Dandy blood lines. Our Brittanys have wonderful persaonalities, love to hunt, are natural retreivers, have long range noses and are very smart. They are easy to house train and make great family dogs as well as bird dogs. Our Brittanys are bred for long legs, short hair coats and are not aggressive. We have both orange & white and liver & white pups and dogs. Our Brittanys will hunt Huns, Grouse and Pheasants up close and will range out to cover ground when Quail or Chukar hunting. With long range noses they will find birds, lock up and point, are natural backers, will hunt dead, retreive to hand, and then scoot to do it all over again and again! We love to hunt with our BiebelBrittanys. We have a sharptailed grouse and pheasant hunting camp in eastern MT, pheasant camps in North & South Dakota and Iowa, and a quail camp in KY. You and your new pup or dog can come join us! Harold Biebel.

Hey Harold, just had to send you a picture of Dusty today. I was out with some friends on their back forty and decided to introduce Dusty to some water and see how he liked it. I threw a stick in the pond and without thinking twice he charged out and dove right into the pond, swam out and retrieved to the hand.
I have had labs that don't take to water that fast !
Later that day I was calling for him and looked over at the pond in the distance.. There he was swimming laps.
Thanks for making such a pleasure of a dog. And he has so much potential I can't wait to get him in the field this year

Harold, happy birthday. Here is that write up, sorry I didn't get it to you earlier. Let's see if it can find its way to a magazine or some other media source. Let's get your name out there more.
Happy birthday, Logan
Unable to sleep on an early evening flight from Nashville to Billings MT, partially due to excitement, but mostly the screaming child behind me, I took some time to reflect on how I came to be where I was.

Nearly 36 months ago, my then girlfriend found a breeder of American Brittanys in western Kentucky, not far from where I was living. A transplant from the Lowcountry of South Carolina, I found myself stationed at Fort Campbell KY, following my graduation from the United States Military Academy, with a fledgling interest in bird hunting. While at West Point, a passion for all things shotgun had been fostered during my tenure on the Cadet Skeet & Trap Team, and I had known for several years that I wanted to get a bird dog and start hunting. By the time I had become aware of Harold Biebel, there was already a deposit down on a German Shorthair Pointer of my own, but my girlfriend thought it wouldn't hurt to meet him. She couldn't have been more right.

Once I had spoken to Harold on the phone and arranged a meeting, I drove to his dog breeding and training facility and was greeted with near smothering appreciation. As a Lieutenant in the US Army I had become comfortable with expressions of gratitude from strangers, but the owner of Biebel Brittanys was about to set the bar higher than it had ever been.

Over the course of the next several months, Harold spent countless hours working with and teaching me about both hunting and dog work. Under his guidance I was able to learn the behaviors and limits of my German Shorthair, Smoke, and prepare us both for my inaugural upland bird season as a dog owner.

That first season, behind a dog of my own, solidified what I thought to be true; there isn't a better way to hunt than with a dog. Many days spent with Harold in the field, hunting over Smoke and dozens of Biebel Brittanys, I began to realize that this was as much a joy for the teacher as it was the student. Over the course of the 2011 Upland bird season, in Western Kentucky, I had become the dog breeder's vehicle for troop appreciation.

A deployment to Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom, in late summer 2012, meant that the next season would be one that both my dog and I would miss, but Harold was insistent that it not slow progress for either of us. I was kept informed of Harold's hunting trips, dog training and tips through regular emails, and I did my best to give him semi-regular updates. In May of 2013 I returned to Fort Campbell, where I was greeted by a slough of my friends, and my hunting and dog training mentor. Shortly thereafter, planning for the upcoming upland bird season began to take priority for me, and I was asked to join Harold and ten Brittanys in eastern Montana for the opening weekend of pheasant season.

Fast forward six days, and I am on another flight, en route to Nashville, reflecting back over my experience.

The morning after my late night (early morning) arrival in the small Montana town, I met Harold and what seemed to be fifteen of his closest friends. I was immediately swooned about, and recognized as the subject of many of Harold's emails, as he passed forward my deployment progress and updates to an email group in the hundreds, all of which were somehow tied to Mr. Biebel by dogs. We ate breakfast, in what seemed to be the only cafe in the small town of 1,200; paid our bills and moved off to the hotel to get ready to hunt.

Operating on a limited budget, and analyzing the cost to fly a 70 pound dog, I had thought about leaving my dog, Smoke, behind; but Harold would have none of that. So once we arrived at the hotel, Harold opened a pin in his dog box, and unleashed my hunting companion and best friend, that he carried from Western Kentucky, who seemed to have been certain I had left him for another deployment. Smoke and I bonded briefly before we were both ushered in a truck, and we headed toward the fields.

Along for the ride, with more than a dozen seasoned hunters and sportsmen, a century's worth of hunting knowledge was dropped in my lap between breakfast and when the shells fell into the chambers of my over-under in that first field. Everything from ensuring I kept Smoke away from porcupines to listening for the cackle of the rooster as it flies, I was doing my best to take it all in, amid my excitement and anticipation.

Once everyone had gotten ready we stepped of into a field, and with views that made me feel like I was reading from a Field & Stream, I could not believe I was actually participating in the hunt. I was even more shocked when the group pushed me to the front to investigate the first point.

As the e-collars wailed, and dogs quivered with excitement, I walked to the point where Smoke and one of Harold's Brittanys were pointing, and with a kick in the brush I flushed my first wild pheasant rooster. I carried the weight of that bird in triumph, and proudly let his tail feathers show from the back of my vest, as I had dropped him in just one shot. The pride was not just in my shot, however, more so I had finally been able to do what I had spent years preparing to do; no more than ten minutes into our day, my dog and I had pointed, flushed and shot our first wild pheasant together, and it was all because of Harold Biebel.

That first day was the only one where we hunted in such a large group, and over the next six days I hunted with nearly everyone who was there to participate; limiting out every day. Each of Harold's hunting companions were just as friendly, appreciative and gracious as he was; which even at 25, I recognize as a sign of the man's character.


Now, nearly three months removed from my own personal manifest destiny, I have a better understanding of the bonds bird hunting can make, and the lessons that can be taught in the field. I have a greater appreciation for how a dog works, the smooth shot of a quality shotgun, and the taste of a wild bird. But all told, as I gear up to head to New Mexico later this month, to hunt elk with Harold Biebel, I have a greater appreciation for my friend and mentor who chose to share his hobby and dogs with me.

Another Blue Ribbon! Thanks Harold, my daughter had a blast once she got over the fact she was surrounded by mud and horse poop. I will send you some pics next weekend of him and his ribbons from the spring for your news letter. So far three trials have produced two firsts and and a second. Hopefully he keeps progressing. I have a house and some land lined up in Gackle, North Dakota in the fall. Good sharptail and pheasant numbers, counting on a good hatch. Let me know if you want to meet up.

Hi Harold!

Well it's been just over 24 hours since we picked up Hadley and I have to tell you it has been an awesome first day! She has been absolutely great! We are so happy and we are all completely head over heels for our new little girl.

You have done an amazing job Harold! She is a fantastic 10 week old pup and I know that has a lot to do with how much effort and love you and your wife have given. We really cannot thank you enough! The entire process, from our first conversation last November to our picking her up yesterday, was a real pleasure. This is the first time we have adopted a dog from a breeder and our experience with you has set a standard for us that would be hard to match. I think it's fair to say that we are excited, and honored, to a part of the Biebel Brittany family! We can't wait to see what the future brings!

Now, I have to brag a little about our girl. When we arrived home yesterday Hadley made herself right at home. We purchased a bed for her on our way home and placed it in the floor when we got inside; she proceeded to climb into it and fall right asleep! Almost like she had been here all along. After her nap, we went outside to play in the yard. Some friends of ours came over to see her and play with her. While we were in the yard my friend threw a pine cone out in front of Hadley about 5 feet away. When it caught her attention she went into a perfect pointing posture and held it for about 1 or 2 seconds. After that he picked up the pine cone and threw it out about 10 feet. She chased it, picked it up, and when I called to her she brought it to my hand. I was absolutely stunned! Now, I truly see just how important genetics are. Since then, she has brought all sorts of great yard finds to my hand! She is already showing great instincts to
hunt, point, and retrieve. On top of all of that, she hasn't had one single potty accident in the house and has pottied everytime she's gone outside. What a great first day!

We are all trying hard to temper our excitement but this sweet girl just keeps impressing us at every turn. Thank you again for your time, efforts and committment.

All our Best,
Ryan, Casie & Ellie Stevens

P.S. Pics will be forthcoming!

Hi Matt. Just wanted to tell you how proud I am of you and Slim. Keep up the good work and please keep me in the loop. Harold Biebel, BiebelBrittanys.

Harold. We are proud of you breeding such a promising performer. Slim's future looks bright as a national caliber all age dog. He will be trying to fill the big shoes his grandpa's Jake and Dandy wore. Matt in MI.

Harold FYI, Slim took second at this weekends field trial. He burnt up the course and one small move kept him from winning. He should have all his juvenile points before his first birthday, which is amazing. Thanks again. Matt in MI.

Hey Harold! Just checkin in. It's almost been a year, Wyatt has been one if the best dogs I've ever owned. I've been training him to retrieve, flush, shed hunt, and of course be a professional baby. I've been meaning to email you for quite sometime, thank you for providing excellent dogs and excellent genetics! Anthony

Hi Harold,

I hope things are going well with you and Renee. I have been meaning to send this email to you for the last few weeks but things have been real hectic and it slipped my mind. Lisa reminded me to send it tonight or we will run out of time.

I wanted to let you know that we will not be bringing Liv down this weekend. Here is the reason why, we have been running her up here in Ohio and what a hard running, big running dog she is becoming. You know that Lisa and I are old retriever field trial people and with Liv's pedigree and what she is showing we thought why not give her the chance and see if she can make it as a trial dog. So we sent her out with Jimmy Johnson about three weeks ago to see if she has what it takes. She has already been to Mississippi and she is currently down at Mingo Sportmans club here in southern OH. It is to early to tell if she will make it, she has only been with Jimmy about three weeks but we are hoping.

I hope you will not miss her to much but I figured you had enough to keep you busy anyhow with all the other dogs. We will miss visiting with you and Renee but would still like to come down sometime in the near future, maybe in May if that works with your schedule.

Again thanks for everything and we look forward to seeing you soon.

Your friends and fellow Brittany lovers in Cleveland OH

Lisa and Brian E.
Kate too!!!
